Off-topic: Newlyweds

I'm not a wedding photographer. It's demanding work with long hours, high expectations and always the fear that "the shot" will be missed. At least that's how it seems to me. Once, a friend requested I take photos at her wedding--she hadn't hired a pro. I spent the afternoon in a near-panic, afraid I'd miss something or someone, and entirely unable to enjoy a lovely event.

So when our son Sam married Angie in October, I was happy they hired a pro (Michael Fletcher of Riverside, CA.) I left my camera in the car during the ceremony. I pulled it out for the reception and took some candids, one of which is below. Technically it's not much: the disco lighting yields some strange skin tones, and noise reduction can only do so much when shot at ISO 12,800. But aren't they just adorable?
